The best MTS book available
In my opioion, Professional MTS VB Programming is the best MTS book on the market. I have purchased several books on MTS and find that this book is the only book that does more than a satisfactory job in covering both theory and hands on.
Briefly, this book takes a beginner by explaining the basics of COM and leads the reader through the ins & outs of MTS. Many advanced topics are covered including an awsome section regarding debugging and administration. Don't get the wrong idea, I have been working with MTS for over 3 years, and as a seasoned MTS developer, I learned many new techniques. Simply this book is for both the beginner and the advanced programmer who wants to "really" learn the ins & outs of MTS.
Because this is a very comprehensive book, the best advice I can give you is for you to try it yourself!

Not Really Professional
Somehow, this book, doesn't really warrant a Professional Tag to it, I was expecting a more exhaustive treatment of MTS particularly in improving performance. Which is very important when it comes to developing in ASP and VB COM. The author treated this area rather trivially, glancing through the topic with some minor tips that any God fearing vb programmer already knows.
Rename it as Beginning VB 6 MTS programming and it will really fit my expectations as the author pretty much touched the surfaces of MTS on a very broad basis.
The book will be really beneficial though for folks who's been programming in VB6 client and moving towards COM developement.
Do hope that wrox can come up with a very 'PROFESSIONAL' book on ASP, VBCOM and MTS to tackle topics like program design and performance.

The supreme book for VB6 with MTS
I bought this book couple of months ago, as i needed a solution with vb6, mts, sql server and com...difficult task, i said that to mkyself, only just the names conjunction frighten me. But i read this book, file by file, thinking a bit about what i just have read, i tried some small examples and when i finished the book, what i have to do was clear. the problem was 50% solved. i started developing and also reviewing some chapters. the book is well written, it takes you from the basics of mts, com, sql til complicated matters. there are many examples that can help u better understand it. so, when u need vb and mts, read this book! some improvements could be done, e.g. the chapters treating the transations done with ado objects and very important, the transactions between com objects. though these things, i gave it 5 stars.
